. >>> one group definitely profiting from the obama care mess, lawyers. the health plan is once again being dragged into court. correspondent shannon bream is here with that story. tell us about this latest challenge. >> reporter: today in federal court in washington this is a lawsuit about the text of an irs regulation stemming from the overall health care law. the plaintiffs in this case say the text of the law says those subsidies that go out to help people buy insurance are only supposed to be given out in states that have set up their own state exchanges and not into states where the federal government is the one operating the exchange. the irs says not. so according to the agency's interpretation those subsidies go to applicants in every state. that is a huge distinction. it's very important. because where the subsidies are awarded, that triggers massive costly mandates for the employers. they wouldn't have otherwise. that's why they're suing. they say the costs will force them to cut employee hours, stop hiring, maybe even go out of business. they say this is just another example of
. what? >>> president obama's famous promise, if you like your health insurance plan, you can keep it, is ringing even more hollow tonight. chief national correspondent jim angle reports on new numbers that indicate just how hard replacing that plan you like may be. >> reporter: one republican said reports obama care had enrolled 29,000 people in two days this week doesn't come close to the pace they need. >> the new improved website will need to enroll close to 100,000 people per day every day this month. that's how many who selected a plan in all of october. >> reporter: others say state and federal exchanges together need to enroll 200,000 a day. that raises the prospect that people whose policies were cancelled might not be able to sign up in time to avoid a gap in coverage, especially since insurance companies are getting bogus information on who signed up. >> it's impossible for everyone that signs up by december 23rd to get coverage and to have that work through the system. >> reporter: but even for those who are able to enroll, about 50% of the plans available are narrow netwo
has been pretty tough on president obama's rollout of the health care law, and i think the question last night that matthews posed to him, his level of management control and ultimate accountability was the right question, i just don't think obama really answered it. it doesn't matter how many times he met with kathleen sebelius, he didn't meet with her enough, obviously. if he was hands on, he would have learned earlier on that this was an enormous task, that the people assigned to it were not up to. and it was ultimately not prepared to be launched on october 1. there were other indications that before october 1, he says he doesn't know about that. either way, whether you know and you're trying to hide it later or you didn't know, that is a failure of leadership. >> what about this whole thing that his take, charles, that government is not good at certain things and we're looking to consolidate some agencies and yet his administration, when describing the success that they're having now, says that the we believe site is operating at private sector velocity. >> and this is after he
, the people who designed obama care from the beginning had wanted to level the playing field in health care, in the field, and what i think it likely to end up as a result is an even broader difference between those who are going to be able to afford the best care and everybody else. it is just the second group will end up much, much larger than i think anybody who was pushing obama care envisions. >> i think that we've learned weeks ago that you will not get the plan that y once had. you won't be untouched by this law. most people will be affected by it. there is no guarantee if you are working for a company right now that tells you everything is right, that next time the waiver expires for corporations you might be dumped into the exchanges. so you were always -- this promise turned out not to be true. we learned that weeks ago. but what the promise was that the care would be affordable and i think the concern is now that even when the website problems are fixed and democrats are hoping there is a period now before december 23rd, a quiet period and then december 23rd you have a rush of en
a decrease in costs, while one-third would face significant rate increases as a result of obama care. bret. >> jim, thank you. >>> the president's par end up paying a stiff price for obama care. senior political analyst britt has some thoughts on that. >> the president's health reform plan is the stuff of jokes but the plts plit cal consequences will be felt. it's likely to prove the least of the problems. mr. obama's deceptive promise that no one would lose their doctors, hospitals or health insurance has done far greater damage. people simply do not forget such conspicuous acts of bad faith. and many congressional democrats set to face the voters next year echoed mr. obama's false promise and are thus complicit in it. millions of americans have now lost coverage, millions more will. countless others are finding out their doctors or hospitals are not included in the obama care insurance offerings. now, in time obama care will undoubtedly produce some winners, especially those who were previously uninsured or who lost coverage but are able to find new policies at a subsidized price. the pr
